Blood clotting is functioned by the blood cells named blood platelets which stop the flow of blood.In the body, if any injury occurs and blood flows these blood platelets (thrombocytes) will reach the site and form a clott by reacting with coagulation factors in blood. By this the bleeding will be stopped.This is the process of blood clotting. Hope this helps you

Blood Clotting is actually a complicated chemical process.When a blood vessel is ruptured the following happens:
Platelets rush to the area.They release an enzyme called Thromboplastin.
Thromboplastin causes Prothrombin to be converted in Thrombin
Thrombin causes fibrinogen to be changed into fibrin
Fibrin forms a net of fibers over the cut and traps the RBC's and platelets to form a blood clot
